A simple Pop-Up card using In The City (Hostess)

Hi! Who doesn’t love an interactive card? I’m sharing a very simple pop-up card created with images from the fabulous Hostess* stamp set In The City.

As the inside of the card is the real star of the card, I chose to have a very simple exterior but I think it is rather striking in its simplicity. All I did was repeatedly stamp images from the stamp set with Wild Wasabi ink on Wild Wasabi cardstock. Finishing off the design with a pop of colour in the form of a heart along with the sentiment was all the outside of the card needed.

Here’s the card…

Materials Used: Stamps – In the City (143771), Dies – Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies (141707); Cardstock – Wild Wasabi, Basic Black, Whisper White; Ink –
Whisper White, Rose Red; White Embossing Powder.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the background with black ink as I wanted to add depth but, at the same time, I didn’t want the inside of the card to be too busy. I made a little slit at each end of the background to create a ‘step’ where I could place my little village. The card was finished with a sentiment. Very simple but effective! And oh, so fun to make!

Here’s the inside…

More In The City (Hostess)

Hi!  I have another card to share using the fabulous Hostess* stamp set In The City. I love this stamp set and have only begun to scratch the surface on all that you can create using it.

The card was inspired by different elements of the cards I shared yesterday. Instead of using a black and white background, I used the Wild Wasabi cardstock and matching ink pad. I love this tone on tone look.

Here’s the card…

In the City (Hostess stamp set)

Hi!  The “In the City” stamp set is one of my favourites of the Hostess* sets on offer in the current (2017-2018 Catalogue).    The stamp set is a two-step stamp set meaning that you can stamp the outline and then stamp the inside of the images.  However, don’t think you have to use it this way.  You could simply stamp the outline, and leave it uncoloured.  You could stamp the outline and colour with any other medium or you could always use the stamps to stamp the colour.  It is fabulous to have so many options.

Another benefit of this stamp set is that it is so versatile with regards to themes.  The accompanying sentiment stamps cover a range of themes such as birthday, baby, and wedding.  It is also a fabulous set for welcoming a new neighbour.

Today I am sharing three similar cards using this stamp set and we are going to step up the look each time.

Here’s the first card…

For this card, I simply stamped the outline images all over a background.  Doesn’t it look effective?

Here’s the second card…

For this next card, I decided to use the solid stamps to give the buildings a bit more dimension.  I stamped with grey ink so that the background wouldn’t be so dark.

Here’s the third card…

For this next card,  I knew I wanted to create a little scene on the front.  So that the background wasn’t too overwhelming, I used the grey ink again but this time left out the solid stamp.  I think this is such a pretty card.
